↑ This week's first townhouse gets the top spot not because it is the biggest or the most expensive of the week, but just for sheer overcomplicated use of the English language. The five-bedroom home located just over a block from Grand Army Plaza in Park Slope is, according to the brokerbabble, "a spatial composition that balances gravity with lightness, old with new, raw with finished." Designed by MESH Architects, it's described as a "vertical loft house," and it wants $4.7 million.
↑ Up next is a freestanding house, complete with a charming front porch, out in Ditmas Park. The six-bedroom home was built in 1902 and has been cared for by the same family for 52 years. It has a detached two-car garage and room for two more cars in the driveway. It wants $1.95 million.
↑ This $1.75 million three-bedroom in Greenwood is only 10 years old, and it shows in the design, both inside and out. It boasts a garage and 10-foot ceilings. If you already have plot at Green-Wood Cemetery, you won't have far to go in the end; you could stare out your living room window at your final resting place.
↑ Back in Park Slope is a 5,000-square-foot home that has crammed in seven bedrooms. It was built in 1910 and still features the original herringbone and parquet floors. It's less than a block from Prospect Park, and it's listed for $5.5 million.
